Default $300

What's the best video card for a game like Battlefield 2 for 300 bucks? I was thinking about a evga 7800 gt but the reviews on newegg were confusing... is the 7800gt the best way to go? Can I have a link for one, too? there's like 3 of them on newegg....

I would get that one too, but not for any of those reasons. That's a lump of misnomers that just HAPPEN to actually work this time. eVGA 7800GT is going to be the best card you can get for $300.

My other specs will be an AMD Athlon 3200+, 1 gig CORSAIR value select RAM, and havent picked out a motherboard, case, or PSU yet. I have $135 for a psu, case, and motherboard. Is that enough?
